Marianne Williamson to speak at Sondheim Wednesday

Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson will speak Wednesday in Fairfield.

Williamson will speak at 7:30 p.m. at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. Her talk is titled, “A conversation with Marianne hosted by Mayor Ed Malloy.”

According to her Facebook page, Malloy will host a question and answer session. Her website says, “Williamson’s run comes after a 35-year-career spent teaching universal spiritual values, non-profit activism and a commitment to social justice. She is an internationally acclaimed lecturer, and has been one of America’s most well-known public voices for more than three decades. Seven of her twelve published books have been New York Times best sellers.”

In the 1980s, Williamson founded the Los Angeles and Manhattan Centers for Living, which provided non-medical support services to people with AIDS and other life-challenging illnesses. In 1990, she founded Project Angel Food, a meal-delivery service to homebound people suffering from AIDS. She also co-founded The Peace Alliance, promoting legislation to establish a United States Department of Peace.
